2 Old Univegas and a Fuji

Keep picking these bikes up at yardsales, don't know much about them, would like to know what they're worth. Any help is appreciated! I paid $75 for all 3.

First One (Univega Super Ten) (Free)





Second (Univega Custom Maxima) (Paid $25)

Steel wheels, turkey levers, stem shifters, high tensile frames, rust, poor condition. About $30 each.

Agreed on the parts, but isn't the Valite chrome-vanadium and not hi-ten?

The sort of bike you fit with 150 Fat Boys, spring seat and high rise handlebars for an inexpensive 10 sp. beach cruiser (usually see equipped with a bell and a coconut drink holder mounted to the handlebars).

You are probably right, in any case the Berkeley is the low end and lite is an oxymoron.

The serial number shows the Custom Maxima frame was made in 1984, so it's either an '84 or '85 year model. This bike was near the low end of the Univega road bike line.

I think the Super Ten is earlier. If the serial number starts with an 'H' then it's a 1979, an 'I' and it's a 1980, etc. It's also near the bottom of the Univega road bike hierarchy but not the ver bottom. The frame is listed (in the 1978 catalogue) as being 'light steel tubing' so I guess it's not even hi-ten steel. All that said, Univega made good bikes for the money, and with some clean up and tuning those could be good casual rider bikes.

You can get a lot of that superficial rust off with dampened aluminum foil.

Nice Japanese steel. Frames are worth more than anything else with bikes like that. Brand new replacement parts are readily available & abundant. Fun to rebuild into pretty city bikes.

Squat, bupkis and ugatz is what they are worth.
